Summary: I bought this Yamaha recv.back in jan of 09 and I've been very pleased with this product, don't be fooled by the 665watts, it can get louder than you might possibly ever need ,this unit is a 7.2 not a 7.1 it has two sub outs, I have 7 pair of JA Audio cube speakers and two powered subs which makes a...
Summary: I got this brand new in box for $350 on ebay and I couldn't be happier. As long as the specs meet your needs (2 hdmi inputs, etc), you'll be pleased. It's true that the settings are a bit daunting in scope, but in my opinion that's good in a receiver.
Summary: This is a great receiver for anyone who has a home theater and a budget (meaning you didn't win the lottery). I have it driving an existing 5.1 surround set-up in the living room and a second zone for the pool area. It is great having the ability to control two zones with different audio sources.
Summary: This is truly a great AV receiver. It has a great number of features and input options. The sound is extremely clean and dynamic, as would be expected from Yamaha. It is a very good value for the price. It is highly recommended.
Summary: SUMMARY: Great Sound, Good video switching, Decodes all HD sound formats, Great DSP features, tremendous value, Pre-Outs upgradable. I was interested in buying an A/V receiver and was undecided between the Onkyo SR606 and the Yamaha RXV663 (aka HTR-6160BL), given what I'd read about them.
Summary: This is an amazing receiver. It functions flawlessly. The HDMI Upconversion is a dream come true for those with HDTV. It provides plenty of sound options for home theater and plenty of power for cranking it up and jamming out. You can't go wrong with this receiver.
Summary: Only AFTER I buy this do I discover the Yamaha "clips" the HDMI video signal -- meaning it can't do the full range of 0-255, instead clipping it to 16-235 and losing Blacker than Black and Whiter than White, which some TVs can handle.
Summary: Got it on amazon to build my home theater around it. Upscaling and upconversion rules. A little bit hard to control, but it definitely worth the money. Highly recommend to anybody. After all, do you REALLY need those 800$+ pieces of equipment?
Summary: First I have to say this is a nice receiver/amp for a technical person. The amp allows you to re-map video to audio ports, it has plenty of ins and outs for connecting gear. Sound quality is grat and the auto setup feature does a good job of setting levels and EQ.
